Aim At The Heart
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

Time doesn't fly
Just hangs over like the sky
It's we who go by
Makes no difference how or why
Everything you cherish
Throws you over in the end
Thorns will grab your ankles
From the gardens that you tend
Damned if you do
Double damned if you don't try
Caught on the fly
Hello fades into goodbye

Aim at the heart
Don't ask whose love you're stealing
Aim at the heart
Even when it's too revealing
Aim at the heart
I tell you, aim at the heart
Aim at the heart

Sitting on a back street many years ago
The tears from your eyes did flow
Feeling out of place inside the time when you were born
No place else to go
Suddenly a rainbow rose
And spread across the land
Hung there while the Beatles sang
I want to hold your hand

What can you say?
Here tomorrow, gone today
Faith fades away
For idols with their feet of clay
Keep your head upon your neck
It's not too late for that
Even though the winds of change
Have blown away your hat

Aim at the heart
I tell you, aim at the heart
Aim at the heart

Kiss it and pass
Time become a looking glass
Where love combs her hair
Look again, she isn't there
The echo of her laughter
Fades into the western skies
Where ribbons that you bought her
Are reflected in her eyes
